Chapter 69.2. The First Year at the Academy – Horns and Iron (2)
We had already been recognized as intruders.
As soon as I crossed the fence, an iron golem appeared from the mansion.
I rushed to it and slashed at it as if I were slipping.
A dull sound echoed.
I nearly knocked off my sword but managed to duck a backhanded counterattack.
Where is the wound?
While dodging more fists, I somehow manage to find the wound.
However, it became thinner and thinner as I looked, and then it vanished.
I slash with all my weight on it. I can’t even laugh.
Before the golem, it’s the compatibility of the materials.
It is difficult to damage an iron block with a lightweight horn.
After that, I slashed at it several times, but the wounds disappeared in the blink of an eye.
It seems impossible. The Rhino sword and a mere slash cannot go beyond “Restoration 6”.
Besides, the repair speed was faster than I imagined. Even if I cut off the neck or limbs, they seem to stick to the sword’s body as soon as it passes through.
Giving up on a straightforward attack, I switched to a magic attack.
First, a single shot, “Shock Bolt”.
The square was lit up.
On the surface, there is no change, and its HP – is slightly reduced.
Next, in Elphimia’s blind spot, I unleash a “Shock Bolt” with “Multiple Chanting”.
The number of shots is three.
Our damage is slightly increased.
My prediction came true. The golem resisted each shot of “Shock Bolt”. I didn’t know “Multiple Chanting” had such a weakness. I’m glad I wasn’t in the worst situation when I found my weakness.
I tried other attributes that might work, but it was unscathed. With this, there was no need to add resistance.
Giving up on attacking, I went on the defensive and searched for the core.
This one also hit the target beautifully. I couldn’t find any traces at all.
In this case, why don’t we try to hit it directly? It’s a blow, after all.
I take my distance and activate “Physical Up”.
With this, my muscle strength is now 19, which is close to the level of a man.
I also activated “Earth Shield” in front of my fist and hit it with the whole shield as a counterattack.
At the same time as the roar, “Earth Shield” bursts open.
The golem wavered slightly, but I grabbed at it without regard.
The golem dodged through it and again took its distance.
It’s too hard.
When I looked at my hands, its body tore up my fists, and blood was oozing. Luckily it’s not broken.
Still, the damage is more than a slash.
A double shield would protect my fist, but it would be difficult to cut it down. It has already recovered.
The only thing left was the “Fireball,” the tiger’s weapon of choice.
Somehow, I could see the result even if I didn’t do it. The fire attribute is ineffective, and the impact is not that strong. It also consumes a lot of magic power, so I can’t fire it randomly like an arrow bolt.
Oh no, this thing was a dead end.
I retreat and return to Elphimira.
I confirmed the iron golem turned away from me, took out a healing potion from my shoulder bag, and sprinkled it on my fist.
“Are you done?”
I return the empty potion to my bag and turn to face Elphimia.
“We can withdraw. But what then? Do you have a plan?”
“We need a powerful physical attack or magic to stop that thing. We don’t have that. I don’t know if we can stop it even with siege weapons.”
The situation did not improve when we returned.
Selene might be able to get some effective magical tools or intermediate-level magic books. But the odds are pretty low. It would be more reliable for me to learn striking combat techniques and lightning magic.
It would be a good idea to ask for help.
Zeret is a hammer user, and his muscle power is more than Markant’s. His character is also perfect. He would lend his help with an answer.
But Elpimia cannot easily make that choice. She has been pursuing her grandmother all alone. Deep down, I’m sure she didn’t want my help either. Besides, there was no telling who would turn against her. The more people she has, the greater the risk.
That is why we had no choice but to try everything we could now.
We would only explore other means after we had exhausted them.
I took my gaze away from Elphimia, who was slumped over and stared at the mansion, which I could not see.
Slashing and body art attacks could not overcome “Restoration 6”. If I combine “Taijutsu” with “Fast movement”, I can increase the power, but it will destroy me first. It is the same with swords. And deep wounds and broken bones take time to heal, even with healing potions. In the meantime, the other side is completely healed.
Magic doesn’t work either. Beginner’s level can hardly break through resistance, and my intermediate level is fire, and Elphimia’s is Ice and Holy magic, which are not effective against iron golems.
After all, there is no other way except to strike the core directly.
If I can find it, I should be able to finish it off with Rhino stilettos.
The problem is the location of the core. That’s where we’ll end up.
Where would I hide it? The head and chest would stand out. You could take advantage of this, but there is a high possibility of an accidental attack. What about the soles of its feet? Unless it falls, I won’t be able to see them, and there is less chance of an accidental attack. It’s a pretty safe position. Another possibility is the joints. If it’s a joint such as an arm, it saves the trouble of covering up the traces of burial.
For a moment, something clicks in my brain and fizzles out.
The knowledge so far, our abilities, and the nature of the golem.
Unraveling and arranging them one by one.
Suddenly, something blurred becomes clear.
“Was I thinking too hard? It’s pretty thin…”
Elphimia gives me a dubious look at my muttering.
